“the second edition of Ryan Gander’s popular children’s book, with new illustrations by Alessandra Genualdo”

Published on the occasion of the exhibition The artists have the keys by Ryan Gander, at the former home of architect Ernö Goldfinger at 2 Willow Road, Hampstead, London. The illustrations in this book incorporate spot colours from the interior of the house.

Goldfinger, the Hungarian-born architect is best remembered for the residential tower blocks he designed in London as part of the government scheme to solve the housing shortage after World War II. These designs include the iconic 31-floor Trellick Tower in North Kensington, a key example of Brutalist architecture.

2 Willow Road is the home Goldfinger designed for his own family in 1939 and it still contains his collection of modern art, personal possessions and furniture. Ryan Gander has used these objects to create a new series of work.
Design: Sara de Bondt
